What are the strongest animals in the world?

In this blog post we will consider what are the strongest animals in the world? Here these include in nature dealing with different scales ranging from planetary, human made and bio-physiological forces.


To start our journey of animal strengths out, we will now consider mammals in the animal kingdom. Before talking about the individual mammal strenghts lets first try and define this animal category:

Mammals are defined from a set of characteristic traits common through all of them. One of these if not the most recognizable one of them are the mammary glands. The mammary glands make it possible for the animals to produce milk to feed their offspring.

Defining traits

Furthermore we have a variety of other traits which include a variety of characteristics such as the following list:

  • Hair or Fur: Mammals are often posed with hair or fair covering their entire body ensuring that the body heat is regulated more easily through the insulating layers of hollow tubes (Hair strands).
  • Endothermy: Mammals are endothermic creatures meaning that they are able to easily regulate their own body temperatures through internal processes in their body.
  • Specialized teeth: Mammals have different types of teeth, including incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. These teeth are adapted for various functions such as biting, tearing, grinding, and chewing food.
  • Diaphragm: Mammals have a muscular diaphragm capable of contracting and expanding playing a crucial role when respirating separating the abdominal and chest cavities allowing for efficient contraction of the lung spaces.
  • Viviparity: Most mammals are viviparous. This means that the give birth to young lively creatures who have matured live within the body of the mother. This differs from egg laying creatures as they are maturing within a hard shell.

These are just some of the characteristics of mammals and thus the list is not a complete list but rather some of the most common traits characterizing mammals in general.

For the next upcoming section lets start and consider the strength that we all know and love, human strength and how it compares to other mammals which we all know from our everyday life.

Humans: Smart, efficient and endurable

Our human traits are similar to many other animals and thus we humans are considered to be mammals ourselves. We have developed a quite comprehensive body which are walking on two legs compared to the general norm of four legs.

This have given us an advantage compared to our mammal relatives as we save energy when transporting around compared to the situation where we travelled utilizing four feet as Gorillaz or chimpanzees do.


The bipedal walking methodology allow humans to endure long distance running which compared with other animals are quite different resulting in the ability to run down prey until exhaustion a common type of hunting strategy practiced in the prehistoric era of human endeavor.

The long distance running endurance allowed us to easily prey on more explosive animals such as deer, cows and horses as the endurance allowed human to outpace the prey over long distances.

Another bipedal advantage of humans is the ability to free up the remaining two legs to develop into hands. The fact that humans have developed hands allowed them to specialize into a variety of different fields of expertise which required specialized movements of hands. Some of the common types of hand movements required are communication driven allowing us to communicate efficiently over larger distances compared to our four legged competitors.

This form of hand gestures and body language developed over the millennia have allowed the humans to develop quite sophisticated forms of communication without saying a single word. This includes the general types of hand waving, eye rolling and smirking of the face which all translate information to people interested in knowing more about what the person is supposed to transfer a message about.

Humans have actually become so good at this that often times we don’t actually think about the interpretation instead we know at an instead what message the person is trying to tell us about. This is one of the defining characteristics of human behaviors which are among other things able to distinct us from other animals.

Next up we will try and consider what constitutes human strength and how that enables humans to actively utilize the motoric muscles which we are all given from birth.

Strength of the human

The strength of human beings are mostly supposed through the legs and upper body strengths. For the particular question regarding strength of the human body lets start off investigating the strongest part of the human body the legs.

The leg muscles are the biggest and strongest pieces of the human body which are able to carry the entire weight of the body and even more as they are used to walk around and jump, run and other types of exercises.

The ability to move and sprint requires quite some flexible strengths of the muscles and when it comes to the leg muscles they are able to easily be trained to adopt to different exposures. The trained potential allows for the conditioning with a remarkable capacity to adapt and improve in strengths, power and endurance. By conducting regular exercise it is possible to train the muscles to adopt to the external loads of the environment which when trained properly can lead to increased performance.

The leg muscles of the human body can on average lift 50% to 70% of the average body weight meaning that a person weighing 70 kgs. Then it is usually possible lift 35 to 50 kgs. Thus the average human being is able to lift approximately half of its own body weight on top of its own weight.

Gorillas: Primate strength

Gorillas are quite strong compared to the average human body as they have developed over the years with effective movements within an environment fostering tree swinging from branch to branch and trespassing difficult to navigate terrain often overgrown with thick branches, leaves and trunks from fallen trees.

The upper body strength of the largest primates such as gorillas are quite difficult to accurately quantify as there does not exist accurate measures of the upper body strengths. However most estimates are that gorillas are several times stronger than the average human body as they typically effortlessly break of very thick branches and punches their hardened chest muscles in an display of dominance and shear upper body strength.

A wild silverback gorilla in its natural habitat.
Figure 1: A wild silverback gorilla in its natural habitat.

Furthermore gorillas are capable easily moving quickly up and down broken and fallen trees utilizing their massively strong upper body strength. As the average Gorilla weigh an approximately 180 to 200 kgs meaning that they weigh quite significantly more than the average human being.

Bench-pressing to the max

We can compare this weight to estimates of the general strength of Gorillas whose estimates of the general strength varies in the order of up to 1800 kgs meaning that they are able to lift more than nine times in fact research have shown that gorillas in certain scenarios are able to lift upwards of 27 times their full body weight! Now that is some bench pressing which are worth noting.

Next up lets look into one of the strongest animals which have walked the earth, an animal which we all know and love; the elephant!

Elephants: Large and strong

The elephant is the largest living mammal on the planet and are found on many continents although not all and their abundance is mainly focused in Asia and Africa. The elephant is a beloved by many and with good reason, they have helped humans carry out exemplary work including lifting and moving heavy equipment and not the least towing wagons filled with goods, see source for more information.

The largest of all elephants are the African elephant. The African elephant weighs between 2.600 and 6.300 kgs meaning that it weighs more than the average car.

Elephants are despite their massive size herbivores meaning that they use their large trunks to pick off leaves and similar from trees located high up from the ground level.

Their distinctive look is characterized by their tusks, long trunks, big ears and shear size which dominates the animal kingdom. A picture of a large male African elephant is outlined in Figure 2.

A picture of an African elephant which is the strongest mammal when compared to the shear strengh
Figure 2: An male African elephant resting its trunk on its tusks.

As such large male elephants only have very limited natural predators as their size make them almost indestructible. Only in certain situations are the male elephants threatened by other natural predators, these include lions which in rare occasions threaten weakened elephant individuals or if they become extremely hungry they might run the risk of attacking an elephant straight on.

Now for the interesting part which we have been waiting on, how much do they lift? While providing a simple and accurate answer might be difficult due to the lack of standardized weights and tools the common estimate for the trunk of an elephant is that it is able to lift as much as 350 kgs, meaning that with it nose it lifts more than the typical human being is able to lift at max strength, however this is not nearly as much as the gorilla can lift.

The reason for the discrepancy between gorilla strengths and trunk strengths of elephants is that the elephant anatomically is quite different from our similar primate the gorilla. As such a more reasonable comparison would be as to how heavy an object an elephant would be able to pull along. For this answer is quite a lot higher than the meager 350 kgs. For pulling power, an elephant is actually able to pull around 7000 kg, or the weight of several average cars. Now that is what I call core strength!

Now that we have looked into the largest land animal, it is time to take a deep dive into the oceans and explore the largest animal which have ever lived on the planet earth, the blue whale!

Blue whale: Massive, slow and gentle

The blue whale is without a doubt a magnificent creature, looking at the shear size of the animal it spans an estimated 30 m’s from top to toe making it the largest living, breathing animal to ever roam the earth whether looking at the sea, land or air.

The blue whale is not only a long animal, it is also quite heavy! As a matter of fact, a full grown individual weighs approximately 100 to 150 tons, corresponding to 100.000 – 150.000 kgs! That is more than multiple fully loaded trucks. For a picture of a blue whale see Figure 3.

Figure 3: Blue whale captured of the coast of Antarctic.

As the individuals are living under water it is difficult\not appropriate to associate a lifting force to any part of the body, however blue whales are quite powerful beings capable of reaching speeds of upwards of 32 kilometers an hour with their massive tails. This is in spite of the massive body mass of the whales making it an truly amazing feat that they are able to accomplish.


Moving on from the large and strong animals such as the elephants and gorillas we instead reduce the scale of the animals and arrive at quite some fascinating possibilities when it comes to shear strength compared to their body weight. Here we will try and consider the strengths of insects one of the smallest (when talking absolute size) animals which we are able to find.

Defining characteristics

To start off lets first try and define what characteristics that is being described by insects, in the following we are trying to list most of the insect characteristics along with some facts about the animals.

  • Body Structure: Insects have a segmented body divided into three distinct regions: the head, thorax, and abdomen. The head contains sensory organs, mouthparts, and compound eyes. The thorax has three pairs of jointed legs and usually one or two pairs of wings. The abdomen contains vital organs such as the digestive, reproductive, and respiratory systems.
  • Exoskeleton: Insects have an external skeleton or exoskeleton made of a tough and flexible material called chitin. The exoskeleton provides support, protection, and serves as an attachment site for muscles.
  • Three Pairs of Legs: Insects have three pairs of jointed legs attached to the thorax. These legs are used for walking, jumping, climbing, or digging, depending on the insect species.
  • Wings (in most species): Most insects possess one or two pairs of wings attached to the thorax. Wings allow insects to fly or glide easily navigating large distances without the need for excessive use of muscles.
  • Antennae: Insects typically have one pair of sensory antennae attached to the head. These antennae play a crucial role in detecting chemical, tactile, and auditory signals from the environment.
  • Metamorphosis: Many insects undergo metamorphosis, which is a transformation process involving distinct stages. Insects with complete metamorphosis, such as butterflies, moths, beetles, and flies, go through four stages: egg, larva (caterpillar or maggot), pupa (cocoon or chrysalis), and adult. Insects with incomplete metamorphosis, like grasshoppers and dragonflies, have three stages: egg, nymph, and adult.
  • Respiratory System: Insects breathe through a network of tiny tubes called tracheae. These tracheae allow oxygen to enter directly into cells, enabling efficient gas exchange without the need for lungs.
  • Reproduction: Insects typically reproduce sexually, with separate male and female individuals. They lay eggs, which hatch into larvae or nymphs, and eventually develop into adult insects.

These are some but not all of defining characteristics of insects which all have something to do with the way that insects go about the world which we live in.

In the following lets bring forth the loop and have a look at one of the most recognizable and amazing creatures living in large colonies on this planet. You might have guessed it already but we are talking about the ant!

Ants: Small and strong

Ants are incredibly strong creatures whose hive mindset can build incredibly complex network of structures and caverns on which they all hide within. In fact, one might consider them one of the dominant species of the planet as they are capable of creating hives within most forest and are to be found on all continents in the world, see source.

Ants are insects and is easily seen to fulfill our defining characteristics listed above, for a zoomed in picture of an ant, see Figure 4. As can be seen the ant fulfil most of the criteria listed as displayed with antennae, an exoskeleton, Three-part divided body and Reproduction system through their egg laying and colony building behavior.

Ants upper body strengths allow them to carry approximately 10-50 times their own body weight. This estimate vary based on a number of different factors such as the ant fatigue, species, terrain and the object geometry.

A picture of an ant lifting both of its antennas showcasing the distinct features in its body imperative for its strength
Figure 4: Ant showcasing the anatomy of general ants including their characteristic back body and eyes, ears and legs.

This impressive feat is only possible due to the ants specific body composition which allows individuals to easily carry many times their own body weight.

When we thus compare the ants strength with the other animals outlined in this blog post, we see that it easily outcompetes both the gorilla, elephant and blue whale when thinking about shear body weight to strength ratios, however as we know, speaking shear absolute strength this ant really loses to its mammal counterparts.

Our comparison methodologies are thus seen to be quite difficult to generalize as both the Gorilla, Elephant, Blue whale and Ant are animals living and breathing on our planet but each have quite different strengths and body compositions adapted to their respective living environments, whether that be dense forests, vast savannahs, deep blue oceans or pine filled forests.

Keeping a focus on the body-strength comparison metric we must acknowledge just how strong the ant is, so in order to fully comprehend this lets try and compare the ratio of 50 times its body weight and apply it to our much larger animal; The elephant.

As we have outlined, the elephant weighs in the range of 6.300 kgs. Meaning that with an assumed ratio comparable with the ant, it would be able to lift approximately 315.000 kgs! Surely this is quite an insane comparison and this just shows the extreme strength which the ant inhibits.

However the ants are easily dwarfed compared to the next animal on the list; The dung beetle.

Dung Beetle: Small, smelly and strong

Dung beetles are fascinating creatures that play a vital role in ecosystems worldwide. These resilient insects belong to the family “Scarabaeidae” and are known for their peculiar lifestyle centered around dung. With over 6,000 species found across the globe, dung beetles are remarkable for their ability to locate, process, and utilize animal feces.

They have a unique adaptation for survival, as they roll or bury dung balls for food or to lay their eggs. By efficiently recycling waste, dung beetles contribute to nutrient cycling, soil health, and pest control, making them essential in maintaining a balanced ecosystem. Their incredible behaviors and ecological significance make them a captivating group of insects to study and admire.

The dung beetle is thus vital for the ecosystem which it exists and thrives in and not only that, it is also an incredible strong animal capable of lifting a whopping 1.000 times its own body weight! This magnificent feat clearly dwarves that of the Gorilla, Elephant and Ant. For a picture with a dung beetle on top of a dung roll see Figure 5.

A picture of a dung beetle siting on its rolled piece of dung showcasing the size difference between the beetle and treasured dung roll.
Figure 5: A dung beetle sitting on top of its round piece of dung which it has rolled up weighing many times more than its own weight.

The dung rolls shear size compared to the dung beetle makes their exhaustive work of molding animal feces into rollable balls an almost unbelievable accomplishment. Furthermore the fact that they are rolling them around, sometimes in inhospitable places such as deserts makes this even more astonishing.


In this blog post we have considered a vast variety of animals ranging from land living mammals to dung rolling bugs. We have compared their individual strengths with their body mass and elucidated some interesting trends and facts about the animals which live on our earth.

In conclusion it is seen that the larger animals win the strength competition when comparing with absolute weight, with the elephant taking the trophy or strongest animal. However compared to their body weight the competition shifts heavily in favor of insects with the dung beetle taking the throne of strongest insect capable of lifting approximately 1.000 times its own body weight.

What are the benefits of exercise?

In this blog post we consider some of the scientifically proven benefits of exercise and list some common questions and answers in relation to it.

Why should I exercise

Before starting to do any type of exercise you might wonder, why should I exercise in the first place and go through the hassle of getting sweaty and tired.

Well first of all let’s start and consider what type of exercise we are talking about, in this blog post we will consider hard physical exercise, defined by high pressure heart rate typical of running or lifting heavy weights.

Furthermore let’s only consider benefits of effects where you are doing hard physical exercise. The hard exercise thus include two different types of burning process defined as anaerobic and aerobic exercises.

Two major types of exercises

There exists two major types of exercise called anaerobic and aerobic exercise defined by the availability of oxygen in the blood when trying to do work.

But more on this later on, let’s stick to the subject of why you need to exercise, in short here are five typical benefits of hard exercise according to the national health guidelines for Americans: see source. The major benefits of regular hard physical exercise are the following:

  • Reduction of risk for mortality in general: People who exercise regularly have a reduced risk for mortality in a broad sense meaning that people regularly exercise in a similar manner.
  • Reduction of risk for cardiovascular diseases: As you increase your overall metabolic rates through regular exercises the risk for dying of cardiovascular diseases minimizes.
  • Reduction of risk for osteoporosis, obesity and cancer: Regular exercise increases the amount of new tissue and regeneration effects of the body through production of
  • Increased mental health: The conduction of regular exercise have benefits for the mental health of individuals by reducing the amount of stress experienced while simultaneously boosting self-esteem leading to a more joyous lifestyle.

These are just a small number of the expected benefits from doing regular hard exercise where the activity level is significantly increased. Thus if you are not convinced already there is another quite significant effect from regular exercises, increased mental health.

Science answers to mental health linkage

According to the WHO (World Health Organization) mental health branch, 5% of people globally is suffering from the mental health disorder depression.

Depression is this one of the most common mental disorders affecting people and the consequences of being affected by depression are devastating with the most severe cases leading to suicide and other society problems.

Some of the most common and devastating effects of depression are the following:

  • Changes in appetite or weight: Depression can lead to changes in a person’s appetite, which may result in significant weight loss or weight gain. Some people with depression may also experience cravings for certain foods, such as carbohydrates or sugar.
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt: Depression can lead to feelings of low self-esteem, worthlessness, and guilt. People with depression may feel like they are a burden to others or that they are not good enough.
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions: Depression can affect a person’s ability to think clearly, concentrate, and make decisions. This can interfere with their ability to perform at work or school.
  • Sleep disturbances: Depression can disrupt a person’s sleep patterns, resulting in difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early. Alternatively, some people with depression may sleep excessively and find it difficult to get out of bed.

These are some but a few of the most serious consequences of depression and as we can see they are quite significant and dangerous which in the worst cases can have fatal consequences for the individual.

Luckily for us there exist quite a number of remedies for depressive people and usually these consist of some simple yet effective rules which might need to be followed. These include some of the following remedies

  • Healthy eating and regular exercise: Improving sleeping habits with early bed and early rising in the morning.
  • Medications such as anti-depressives: These might help reduce some of the most serious symptoms of depression such as the suicidal thoughts or sedentary behavior.
  • Conversational therapy: Through use of conversations with professionals it is possible to mitigate some of the symptoms of depression as tools and frameworks given by professionals help individuals understand their situation better.
  • Support groups: By incorporating within a support group it becomes easier to understand ones troubles and needs which can help comprehend the situation which the individual is stuck within. This also incorporates the need for individuals to feel connection with multiple people.

These remedies for depressive symptoms are not a full list but are some of the most common answers to depressive symptoms which may be found and followed by individuals.

Anaerobic exercise

During anaerobic exercises, the absorption of oxygen is prohibited as the intensity versus the amount of oxygen available during the active period is restrained meaning that the body is forced to burn calories through processes not using oxygen therefore the name anaerobic.

By performing high intensity workouts the initial burning of calories follow the anaerobic processes and lasts for usually a small amount of time ranging from seconds to a few minutes. It is the body’s way of quickly reacting to the different abruptly starting environmental burdens which may be experienced.

This is key as the inadequately intake of oxygen compared to the necessary requirements due to the elevated activity level causes a particular type of burning mechanisms in the body to occur.

The burning mechanisms utilize stored energy in the muscles and tissue that is quickly used up to perform work from the muscles during the small high intensity period.

One important consideration when performing this kind of high intensity workout routine is the increase of endurance. Endurance is the ability to perform and conduct high intensity workout through periods of time during which the experience is somewhat unpleasant.

Aerobic exercise

The aerobic exercises which are being conducted require quite some intensity in order to truly facilitate the burning of calories through oxidized exercise. As with all types of exercise there exist a point where the body needs to start burning calories through the aerobic processes as the oxygen deficit initially utilized is paid off through use of the aerobic calorie burning processes.

The steady state oxygen consumption rate is related to the heart rate and volume associated with the transport of blood and oxygen through use of the red blood cells. In order to better understand illustratively how the oxygen concentration in the blood varies with exercise an illustration of the oxygen consumption have been made and outlined in Figure 1.

Here we can clearly see the initial oxygen deficit incurring as the amount of oxygen consumed is larger than the oxygen uptake, since the following heart rate increase easily follows that of the oxygen burn rate, we see an decrease in the oxygen benefit with time. This decrease in oxygen deficit is a direct result of the increased uptake of oxygen as the aerobic processes catches up with the remaining needs of the body.

Illustration of the oxygen deficit curve as experienced when performing exercises from beginning until the ending the performed exercise.
Figure 1: Illustration of the oxygen deficit curve with relation to oxygen uptake when performing exercises. Illustration from source.

Afterwards when the oxygen demand wears off, meaning that the primary exercise most likely has stopped then the post-exercise oxygen consumption or (EPOC) period begins. This period is dominated by the amount of lactic acid produced in the muscles which has been built up during the exercises.

The amount of oxygen deficit needs to be ‘paid’ off through excess breathing after the end of the exercise as the body needs more oxygen in order to return to its normal state from the increased activity. Now that we have considered some of the individual processes of anaerobic and aerobic exercise lets now consider the difference between the two and how this contributes individually.

Difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercise

Now that we have covered both anaerobic and aerobic exercises in detail let’s now try and consider in a chemical sense what makes the two different. In the YouTube video below we uncover the chemical disposition differences between the energy creation from an anaerobic and aerobic process. This way the differences and similarities between the two start to easily unravel.

Video 1: Explanation of the anaerobic and aerobic exercises and how the generation of energy between the two processes are made.

The creation of energy, ATP, which the body is able to translate into motion of the joints or legs, is what creates the burning of calories and similarly within the body.

This production of ATP is absolutely critical for our warm blooded body as if it wasn’t possible to transform calories into ATP we wouldn’t be here.

The best exercises for weight loss

In order to facilitate weight loss it is important to consider how we actually lose weight in the first place. For weight loss to happen you are required to burn more calories than you ingest daily so that you are supposed to eat less than you burn and utilize to sustain yourself.

Portions are important

This is happening by moving and exercising and watching carefully what you ingest so that you don’t overeat so to say meaning that you shouldn’t eat anymore than you necessarily need to stay warm and healthy.

Therefore in order to start loosing weight an important parameter is exercising more and eating less, it is actually that simple! You need to watch what you eat and make sure that you exercise regularly keeping you in motion, hence burning calories, and making sure that you don’t eat to much.

According to a recent study from 2017 titled: “How does plate size affect estimated satiation and intake for individuals in normal‐weight and overweight groups?” Research have shown that the plate size effects the portions size and hence the amount of food you intake during a regular meal. The conclusion on the study was that the plate-size effect on overweight individuals differed from normal weight individuals and that the apparent feature of eating less from small plates can be affected from the type of dish and apparent appeal of the food.


There exists a plethora of reasons why it is important to do regular exercise and therefore singling out a singular reason is not really possible. However one of the best advantages of regular exercise is the apparent minimization of risks associated with depression including weight gain, suicidal thoughts and mental resistance against outside responses to the environment.

Furthermore when trying to lose weight it is imperative to increase the amount of exercise conducted such that the individual burning rate of calories remain high through the life-style changes which are being introduced.


Peng M. “How does plate size affect estimated satiation and intake for individuals in normal-weight and overweight groups?”. Obes Sci Pract. 2017 Jun 27;3(3):282-288. doi: 10.1002/osp4.119. PMID: 29071104; PMCID: PMC5598018.

AI conquers the world

Everything ChatGPT

In this blog post we dive deep into everything ChatGPT, from its creation, usecases, founders, potential impact on the labor market, among other features.

What is ChatGPT

ChatGPT is a natural language processing algorithm based on the GPT-3 algorithms capable of performing conversional logic in a ask-response type of manner.

The ChatGPT chatbot is capable of holding normal conversations, writing code, answering questions iteratively, provide summary and translations from one language to another and admit mistakes when performed. These among other features are possible due to the massive amount of computational training which have gone into the Chatbot and general large language model.

Who made ChatGPT

The ChatGPT chatbot is the result of OpenAI’s research on natural large language models and training of such on huge amount of data available through the internet among other libraries. The chatGPT chatbot launched on November 30’th 2022 and have since been the fastest widespread technology to enter the broader public compared to similar technologies such as Airbnb, Netflix, Spotify, Facebook and Dropbox, see Figure 1.

Comparison statistics about the time to reach one million users based on the time to market. Here ChatGPT have outpaced members such as Facebook, Netflix and Airbnb
Figure 1: Statistic showing time to reach one million users according to Statista, see source: Statista.

This explosive growth rate is unprecedented as compared similar type of technologies such as Instagram. However one may argue that the type of engagement needed for Instagram is significantly different from the type of engagement that ChatGPT offers as you can easily hold conversations, translations and similarly however the content creation part is different in the sense that on Instagram one utilizes user created content as a self fulfilling way of quickly bootstrapping users while the conversations one would have with ChatGPT is personalized and hardly replicable or shareable in general.

What data have ChatGPT been trained on?

The data which ChatGPT have been trained on goes back into the year 2021 with a cutoff date undisclosed to the general public by the founding OpenAI team. The databasis behind the natural language model which ChatGPT is based on, GPT-3.5, consists of a massive amount of text data downloaded from the internet including articles, books, reviews and other type of text based data which can be researched online through the internet.

Language barriers are broken down

The content of the internet is diverse and broad with languages ranging from all places on the world. This allows ChatGPT to easily recognize individual patterns within each major language such as English, French, Spanish and Portugese. This way enables ChatGPT’s pattern recognition methodologies to easily translate between languages in a way much more efficient than similar types of translators.

The translation mechanisms which ChatGPT facilitates creates a tremendous value creation as usual translations are made from human to human contact this way of translating written material allows for freeing up human resources such that more people can be involved in the creation of humanities most refined activities such as innovation and research, creation of art and new technologies.

Exceeding user expectations

When using the ChatGPT bot it quickly exceeds user expectations as users go into the experience thinking that they will quickly run out of ideas or get bored talking to a computer. This is not the case however as users continuously experience surprisingly engaging content from talking with the natural language processing unit. Customers of the NLP chatbot ChatGPT thus experience a better than expected user experience using the designed chatbot. This ensures commitment of time resources towards the chatbot from external people as the knowledge of the ChatGPT solution becomes widespread throughout the world in general.

Increased popularity

The innovative solution have thus created a massive burst of popularity among the general public and quickly ChatGPT is on everyone’s lips. The increased traffic towards the original webpage is hard to monetize for the researchers and creators of ChatGPT. They have an interest in monetizing the internet traffic as more people are using output which they themselves have created and invested a lot of time and money into developing.

Monetization strategies for ChatGPT

Unlike regular internet traffic which is easily monetizable through the use of ads, affiliate marketing and subscriber paid content. When which monetization strategy to utilize different pros and cons exists for each choice. Lets outline some of the most common types of strategies with pros and cons. Disclaimer; the following pros and cons list have been generated by a natural language processing model and have afterwards been factchecked through a human reader.


Advertising: One of the most common ways to monetize internet traffic is through advertising. This involves displaying ads on websites or in mobile apps, and earning revenue based on the number of clicks, impressions, or other metrics.

  • Pros: Advertising can be very lucrative, particularly for websites or apps with a large audience. It is a well-established model that is easy to implement, and there are many advertising networks and platforms that can help connect publishers with advertisers.
  • Cons: Some users may find ads intrusive or annoying, and ad-blockers can reduce revenue for publishers. Additionally, the revenue earned from advertising can be unpredictable, and can be affected by factors such as ad-blocking, changes in advertiser demand, or changes to ad platforms.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing: Affiliate marketing involves promoting products or services on a website or social media platform, and earning a commission on sales that result from clicks or other actions taken by users.

  • Pros: Affiliate marketing can be an effective way to earn revenue without the need to create or sell products or services directly. It can also be a good fit for websites or social media accounts that focus on a particular niche or topic, as it allows for targeted promotion of relevant products or services.
  • Cons: Affiliate marketing can be highly competitive, and success may depend on factors such as the quality of the products being promoted, the size and engagement of the audience, and the strength of the competition. Additionally, some users may be skeptical of affiliate marketing and may be less likely to click on links or make purchases.

Subscription based

Subscription based: Here you monetize internet traffic through subscriptions. This involves charging users a recurring fee in exchange for access to content or services.

  • Pros: Subscription-based models can provide a stable and predictable source of revenue, and can be particularly effective for content or services that have a loyal following. They can also be used to build long-term relationships with customers, as subscribers are more likely to be engaged and invested in the content or service.
  • Cons: Subscription-based models can be challenging to implement, particularly for new or unproven products or services. They may also require ongoing investment in content or features to keep subscribers engaged.

Overall, the choice of monetization strategy will depend on a variety of factors, including the nature of the website or app, the audience, and the goals of the publisher. It’s important to consider the pros and cons of each strategy before deciding which one to pursue.

The difficulties in choosing the right monetization strategy is therefore not as straight forward as one would envisage. This being said it seems that the OpenAI team have decided upon the subscription based monetization suggestion with the invention of the ChatGPT+ subscription providing end-users with end access and prioritized turbo use of the ChatGPT bot even during peak hours which are specifically demanding timeslots where users could expect reduced answer time for the ChatGPT to answer.

Keeping the innovation kernel burning

At ChatGPT, the company is continuously working to improve their algorithm and update their systems to keep up with the latest advancements in Natural Language Processing (NLP) methodologies. They are also working on expanding their knowledge base by adding more information to their database, which will only lead to better and more accurate responses to every user’s inquiries.

How much money does ChatGPT make

The valuation of ChatGPT is difficult to manifest exactly as currently the increased traffic of the webpages and surrounding talk in society is hard to accurately predict or set a monetary value upon. The valuation of OpenAI is similarly difficult to accurately predict as the company currently has only produced openly available software solutions thus customers and users of the software don’t pay for their utilization straight away meaning that they the conceptual value of the company is designed based on whoever want to pay more for the service.

lacking revenue streams

Currently ChatGPT therefore doesn’t create any revenue meaning that the entire investment space is utilized for supporting the research and development of ChatGPT and thus no revenue comes out for the initial investment as of yet.

Valuation of the company: OpenAI

For valuation purposes the recent investments of Microsoft into ChatGPT, although no exact amounts have been disclosed to the public, the order of magnitude for the ChatGPT investment runs up into billions of dollars, meaning that the valuation of OpenAI compares to that of recent small-mid cap stocks listed on the NYSE.

This means that although no revenue is currently generated by ChatGPT and no exact disclosure have been made by Microsoft into the exact amount of money being poured into ChatGPT and especially the backend of ChatGPT for further development of NLP-models.
